Old Abandoned Ship Grows A Forest

Quote:
In the notoriously polluted waters of Homebush Bay in Sydney, Australia, there is a Floating Forrest flourishing on an abandoned 102-year-old transport vessel.
It looks like something out of a movie or some type of art installation, but what makes this juxtaposition of nature and industry so majestic is that the plant-life flourishing on this ancient ship came into being through natural causes.
This amazing ship is the SS Ayrfield, a 1,140-tonne vessel built in 1911 as a steam collier that was later used in WWII as a transport ship.
In 1972 the SS Ayrfield was brought to Homebush Bay to be dismantled. But, due to a cease in operations at the ship-breaking yard, parts of several large vessels including the Ayrfield were left behind.
The largest objects in the area are infamous for their part in decades of chemical dumping and pollution. But only this Century-old ship would be transformed by time into a beautiful floating forest.
